It has happened in every previous Call of Duty game, Infinity Ward have tried harder and harder to stop it from happening but it seems it was inevitable. Modern Warfare 3 has been hacked.
“You can see the results of some of these hacks in the videos below. The videos include users on the Xbox 360 using hacks such as walking AC-130′s, infinite ammo, superspeed, and general all-around God-mode for the glitcher.”
In the past, hackers have ruined Call of Duty games completely by creating hacked lobbies. You could be happily playing along, slowly gaining prestige levels and gaining your titles and emblems like a normal, happy COD player than BAM it is all over. You are put in a hacked lobby and you either get boosted to top prestige and given everything or everything gets taken away…
Hackers have ruined games in the past so make sure it doesn’t happen to you by not joining any private matches as urged by the official Call of Duty twitter feed.
As we all know, Infinity Ward has a zero tolerance policy on hacking:
“Any player demonstrating ‘game abuse’ in the form of modifying the executable or creating infected lobbies with or without the purpose of gaining experience, prestige, score, weapon levels, icons, titles or other related in-game unlocks.
( i ) First Offense: With proper verification, user is console banned.” So lets hope Infinity Ward finds out how this has happened and gets it fixed ASAP.
If you find yourself in a hacked lobby then we recommend unplugging your game from the internet and turning your console off immediately, this way your overwritten stats or anything else the hackers could do will not be updated on your profile!
In the video below you can clearly see people exploiting the game with hacks. Keep your eyes open people, report anyone you see using hacks and watch your stats to make sure they haven’t been tampered with.
